Braxton Hicks??

 Okay, so mid afternoon yesterday I suddenly got this sharp overwhelming pain....but in my back. It seriously reminded me of period cramps...not the pain, but how they came about. It was like I felt the ache...then all of a sudden BOOM! pain. Then it would ease away, but not completely. It's get all achy again until the pain hit again....does that sound like I'm having Braxton Hicks? I looked it up, and apparently its not abnormal. My only difference is it doesnt start in my lower back, it's about mid-back right under my sport's bra and shoots down. It lasted about 60-90 seconds each and wasnt in any specific interval. But the pain came and went in waves that reminded me of my period cramps....so my question is, is this the infamous Braxton Hicks? I'm about 34 1/2 weeks and haven't felt anything, but I'm hoping these are them (not because I enjoy them, only cuz it means I'm even closer to being done Lol)

 If you are contracting, your belly should harden up too, and be very hard at the peak of the contraction.  Hope you find some comfort.
